”From the time I was a teen to now - my early 40’s - I’ve suffered from frequent breakouts, oily skin and cystic acne. I’ve tried too many products that promise to eliminate the acne and don’t come through. I’ve been to my doctor, a dermatologist and an esthetician - none could recommend nor prescribe a product as good as this one. As soon as I started using this product, it gave immediate results. I use this product everyday - morning and at night. I have even purchased these products for my sisters to try, since they also suffer from the same skin problems as I do. So far, they also agree that this is a miracle product and plan to continue using it.”

can prep, tone, mattify, disinfect, soothe, heal

i'm never without a bottle of this on my vanity. it does several things for me. i use it on my t-zone and cheeks after washing in the morning to disinfect, tone, mattify and minimize pores before i put on my base (vmv skin savvy 60). it preps my skin and makes it easier to blend my base. i've also stopped using anti-perspirants altogether and apply this on my underarms every morning to treat and prevent sweat acne and bacteria. plus i haven't seen chicken skin in quite some time (even my laser therapist has given my pits compliments). i also use this to day-old post-waxed skin, on occasional zits, would-be-zits, allergic itchy bumps, red inflamed bumps, anything that requires some soothing and healing. the only caveat: i've tried bringing this with me on several travels and the plane ride doesn't seem to sit well with it. it bursts out from the sealed bottle and messes up my toiletry kit. to this day, i still haven't figured out a way to seal it tightly to survive a long flight.

Best Skincare Product from VMV!

As much as I want to spend all day talking about this, there isn't much to say but BEST PRODUCT EVER! I use at least 3 VMV products daily and 7 overall, but amongst them all, this one is irreplaceable. It's not necessarily a spot corrector but me and partner use it for pimples that are just about to break through the surface, and it works like a charm, every time! It can also be used as a matttifying agent before applying makeup. But best of all, it serves as an amazing EXFOLIATOR, 4-5 days after my brazillian wax, I apply this to the waxed area everyday until the growing hairs finally break through the skin's surface. I have not had a problematic ingrown hair since I started using this. Just buy it, it'll surprise you in so many wise you've never imagined.

Great cooling, clearing serum!

I always look forward to this part of my skincare routine because I love how this gel feels! It's cooling (ah, perfect after a long hot day) and you can feel your pores tightening. It also helps dry out pimples super fast! A must for oily skinned ladies out there!

Really does wonders

I had a REALLY REALLY bad breakout about a month ago and it was then that my friend recommend this product to me. I was hesitant at first because it was a bit pricey, but my friend attested that vmv really did cure her breakout in hs. So I then decided to give it a go, i purchased the red better flare up cleansing cream (because the whole id line wasn't available back then) with this gel and the dewy tree tea tree mask. To tell you the truth, i was a bit skeptical at first because i didn't know if this was the one drying up my pimples or the mask, but i tried using the mask as a spot treatment to one of my acne and i did the same with the gel ( i reinforced it several times during the day) and it was then that i confirmed that it was the gel that was doing wonders. It really helped considering that I wasn't using the whole ID line of vmv for pimples. I'm currently using this with the ID toner and the same cleanser and the results are amazing!! I actually don't have any breakouts right now but I hope that it helps with the blackheads and keeping my pimples at bay.Now all I have to do is take care of the pimple scars that were long on my face even before this product and my dull skin. The only downside is that the ID toner and this gel are almost always out of stock here. I'm about to run out, so please restock!! LOL :)

A Skin Saver

This is the perfect product for oily skin. The gel is very easy to apply and leaves my oily skin fresh and clean. It dries up pimples overnight, I guess it's because of the alcohol content. My husband (with dry skin), tried using Id Monolaurin Gel, but it did not work for him. I guess this is best for oily / combination skin only, or if just follow-up with a moisturizer after using the gel. As for me, my skin loves this product. It works well. Highly recommended.

Ultimate skin saviour!! MUST HAVE!!

I cannot even emphasize enough how great this product is! For about 4-5 months I've experienced the worst breakout of my life and I've tried SO MANY products - acne gels, toners, astringents, spot treatments, home remedies, frequent trips to the derma, microdermabrasion - to no expense. It was so frustrating having new zits and whiteheads pop up just when one finally dried out, it seemed like a never ending battle with acne. Even more depressing were the scars that were left behind and I just couldn't go out of the house with no make up on because of this. VMV's Id Monolaurin Gel is the BEST and MOST EFFECTIVE acne treatment I have ever tried!! I swear it's so effective. It targets the acne-causing bacteria and works just on that spot (it doesn't dry out the surrounding skin unlike ALL the other products I've tried before). I would apply this all over my face 3 times a week, as well as use this as an acne spot treatment. It significantly reduces inflammation and treats pimples in a few days time. Love that it also treats chicken skin and other bumps not limited to the face. All around skin saviour!! I love love looove this product, definite must have in every girl's beauty arsenal! <3
